at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response
-one u. s. presidents combined from george washington to george w. bush, he has racked up more debt in 2-1/2 years as president barack obama racked up more deficits than george w. bush in all eight years combined and george w. bush was fighting two wars and barack obama had more deficits and two years than george bush did in eight years. he socialized health care which the congressional budget office says is going to sway 800,000 jobs but more importantly for young people for us it is going to raise our premiums because in obamacare it is tough to weigh a provision that says insurance companies can no longer very price according to one's age or health status. insurance companies look at us and see again healthy individual and say you got to pay the same rate as your parents and grandparents. a huge redistribution of wealth from young to old and the left celebrates it. youth unemployment at historic highs. you have almost double the national average with those 18 and older and you look at the key to unemployment. many of you are in this category if not all of you and in america right now

to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looksç very presidentialish from a distance. on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobbiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any note. there's no fred thompson legislative achie
making under $250,000 a year. the president didn't specifically mention president george w. bush or mitt romney by name specifically. he did implicitly link the policies of the two men. >> we have tried it their way. it didn't work. congress passed trillions of dollars in tax cuts that benefitted the wealthiest americans more than anybody else. what happened? the wealthy got wealthier. most americans struggled. >> the president said today he would call for congress to take action on this. nobody in washington expects the legislative grid lock here to break any time before the election. that means this issue and so many others in the fiscal cliff scenario will have to be dealt with sometime after the election between november and the beginning of next year. so there are six to eight weeks where washington has to deal with some stuff. for now this is all politics. >> all right. just a quickie. >> yeah. >> what you're saying is the so-called middle class tax cuts will be extended but the upper end tax cuts for the rich, et cetera, et cetera, will be ended permanently. is that the idea? ex-t

presidential candidate george h.w. bush won the election, and he also said something at his convention that would come back to haunt him. >> read my lips, no new taxes. >> oops, this time around, we have mitt romney in a fix over his tax returns. and this is what he had to say about it. >> you know what, i put out as much as we're going to put out. once i have added the year, this year, and that's the information that gives people more information than is required by law. >> it's already been packages into an obama ad. >> you know what, i put out as much as we're going to put out. >> i'm joined tonight by howard fineman, nbc political news analyst, and editorial director of the huffington post media group. howard, great to have you with us. what are you hearing from republicans because the dam seems to have already broken with conservatives calling on him to release more returns. this is just a continual drip. >> i was laughing when you in o introduced me because i was talking to your producer, and you and i and he all had the same idea at the same time earlier today. which is, is the
-frank legislation and the case being put forward by c. boyden gray, who served in the george w. bush administration. our phone lines are open. you can join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an e-mail. what is the constitutional argument that you are putting forth that this is not constitutional? guest: our argument is that there is no oversight for this huge bureaucracy. the president, once he appoints the director, will no longer have influence on what the director does, and not have a check on his or her power. the congress has no financial responsibility because the bureau is paid for by the fed, which is beyond congress control with its budget, and they can do whatever the concern all -- consumer bureau wants to do with the 18 statutes that have been handed to them, implemented by the fed or the trade commission, where several other agencies. -- or several other agencies. so, the whole world is turned upside down, and richard cordray can do anything he wants without any political check on what he does. it is unprecedented. there is no animal like this in the federal government, an
be like george w. bush having only been up 6 points in alabama over john kerry in 2004. that is too close. if you're an incumbent president and democrat you need to be killing in michigan, it needs to be a total wipe out for you. you should not have to ror reabout spending resources there. in the i70 and north corridor going out from pennsylvania all the way out to iowa up into wisconsin, michigan, those states he's got big problems. democrats had huge problems there in 2010 and president obama has the worst numbers among white working class voters who are maybe as much as 40% of the election threa electorate since walter mondale. megyn: if bill clinton were running they'd say, there i my guy. i love bill clinton, the boy from hope. if they don't connect with president obama is bill clinton getting up there andt me, he's o it? >> i tell you what he's going to say. he's pretty good, he's not as good as i was, but he's pretty good, he's pretty good. megyn: there is risk of that with president clinton, there is very real risk of that. >> that's what he does. you remember in the springtime wh
of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smash china. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making real decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
romney. >> chip, this may be the positive side. president george w. bush grabbed 11% of voters in '04. mccain just got 4% in '08. when we're looking at governor romney and what he might be able to get is it that space that comes into play in the african-american vote? >> it is that space in the percentage and the space on the numbers. obviously in 2008, the african-american community, not only a big margin. they had a huge turnout because they were so excited to vote for barack obama the first time. you fast forward four years later and talk about the economy and some things that mitt romney has done and the turnout numbers may not be as large as sheer volume. percentages would probably be about the same. there's key states that could make a big difference. >> 40% of the new voters in '08 were african-americans. so the challenge here is you are intimating to get them back to the polls. >> it's going to be very hard to repeat that. >> april, chris, chip, thank you to all of you. >>> a clash over pay and vice president joe biden's hometown of scranton as the mayor cuts the pay of city worke
. this comes from a top foreign policy advisor who was then provide to sudan for george w. bush and accused him of leaking to "new york times" reporter who wrote a book about mr. obama's foreign policy. carney said williamson based the claim on rumors. >> that same person called russia the soviet union multiple occasions and he called governor romney governor reagan and could not accurately or intelligently or coherently state a foreign policy difference between this president and the governor. >>reporter: the admiral who led the bin laden raid says that both the white house and capitol hill are taking the leaks very, very seriously and says they need to because the leak could cost lives. >>shepard: thank you from the white house. >> the labor department is reporting a steep drop in the number of americans applying for jobless benefits, down by 35,000 last week for 353,000. that is a new or nearly a now year lower but temperature factors could cause the dramatic ups and downs we have seen recently. and now to gerri, anchor of the willis report. how reliable are the numbers? >>gerri: not so much
of both parties, h.r. 4607, absolutely -- h.r. 4607 is absolutely long overdue. president george w. bush rushed excess amounts to close before he left. president obama will undoubtedly do the same. that's wrong. it's simply wrong. and we know it is and we know that often, as this bill says, these are regulations that aren't heard before the election and are concluded in those 75 days before departure. it's wrong, we know we need to stop it, we shouldn't abrogate our responsibility and the members on the other side will suddenly decide, i'm sure, this is a better idea should mitt romney be elected in the fall. this bill is supported by the chamber of commerce, association of builder andy contract -- builders and contractors, small business and entrepreneurs council, and the national federation of independent businesses. the fact is, this is about simply saying, not that we're going to stop 3,000 regulations, but that we're going to slow and evaluate more carefully the 66 largest of them by this administration last year. during debate the administration was essentially lauded for having pa

back in 2000, george w. bush narrowly won this race by 537 votes in that state and gave him the election. in 2008, barack obama won florida and that was a pivotal race for him. i think in this election, florida could be a deciding point. you know, florida, ohio, and virginia, the three states everybody's focusing on. so if they can win florida, get the senior vote, get the latino vote, get the other constituencies, they can make a win in the election in the electoral college. >> hogan, let's talk about the senior vote for a second. the president will be trying to convince seniors in florida that mitt romney's plans will end medicare as we know it. mitt romney has said he supports phasing out the current medicare system,

the republicans were looking for a candidate to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looks very presidential-ish from a distance on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any
. when you reduce taxes, as john f. kennedy did, as ronald reagan did, as george w. bush did, and in fact, the bush tax cuts resulted in a 13% increase in revenue. the president knew that. he said that if you keep money in the private sector, it is not the government put the money, it is the people's money. if people keep the money, they could invest, hire more people. i believe tax cuts clearly create jobs, which then increases revenue and the bush tax cuts prove that point. i would be happy to get that information to you. do not hesitate to contact my office a i am telling the truth. host: barbara. south dakota. independent line. caller: good was just curious, e elected as a representative, senator, or congressman, i understand you are part of either the democratic or republican party, but once you are elected, is it not your duty to represent both parties, the democratic and republican, because you are our elected official? is it not your responsibility to look at both sides and take the best pieces from both sides and decide what is went to work best for the people that live in this c
